Home Theater

When we first moved into
our home there was one room that was designated as the home theater.  It worked out just fine for the time when we
moved in but as our kids grew up and started having families of their own, we
needed to make some changes.  When we had
get togethers, one of the activities we enjoyed was watching movies, especially
during Christmas time.  We would all cram
into the theater room but there never seemed to be enough seating room.  That sometimes caused some quarrels and
resulted in some unhappy children.

We looked around for some
new ideas, and went to some Home Shows (my wife loves going to them and there
are some pretty cool things to see).  One
home that we went to had a home theater that had separate tiers for
seating.  We found our solution!

We decided the couches
that we wanted to have in and custom built some platforms so that there would
be enough room for the seating and to walk in front of it.  The first step to making this change was to
remove the carpet.  Once this was done,
we started to build the different levels that would house the new couches we
picked out.  We measured out the wood,
cut it, then put it together.

Once the platforms were
built we secured them to the ground.  To
do this we used wood blocks and drilled holes into them that went into the
concrete.  We then used masonry screws to
attach it to the ground.  To finish it
off, we added tack strips around them and installed new carpet.  Now we have enough seating for our family!
